Listening to music while cleaning, makes everything so much more fun! I always listen to jazz, which is why this time I visited some musician friends.
Whether getting a mold removal in the kitchen, the bathroom, or the attic, I really never do it without music. Ironing is also such a wonderful moment to have the music on nice and loud. It goes through a lot faster and it is a wonderful excuse to go crazy unnoticed. Because I sing along and dance along. You can count on YES!
Listen to jazz music
Everyone has a style of music that they love. For me personally, that’s jazz. I love jazz. So there is always a CD (yes I still have them!), or a phone ready with which I can listen to jazz. How about ‘Get Yourself A New Broom’ by Duke Ellington… nice and appropriate too. Or ‘Sway’ by the one and only Ratpack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, and Dean Martin. I’m already feeling like sopping again!
The Hague and jazz are of course a kind of two-unit. Every year, of course, the North Sea Jazz festival takes place with us. But the city has many more places where you can regularly listen to live music. For example, at Café Murphy’s Law there is a jazz evening every month where legendary Dutch musicians play. That’s why it seemed nice to make a video portrait of some of these gentlemen instead of a cleaning tip. We have really world-famous jazz musicians in the Netherlands and we don’t even notice it!

Jazz pianist Rob Agerbeek
Perhaps the best-known of all, pianist Rob Agerbeek is renowned worldwide for his jazz. He was born in Jakarta in 1937. And you know what’s so special, he’s completely self-taught. He taught himself everything and all that by listening to gramophone records. He is also called Mister Boogie Woogie, but he can do so much more. I’m always terribly impressed when you hear him play live like that.
Trombonist Flip Robers
Flip is also known as the Harbour Jazz band. With his band, he became known as far as Japan! You have to check. But they also toured the United States and Canada. Yet he is not a full-time musician, because he is actually an architect and has his own architectural office. Every time I hear him play I get happy. So turn that volume knob to FULL SPEED, grab a bucket, a cloth, a vacuum cleaner, and whatever you need. Listening to music and cleaning, believe me, it’s a ‘match made in heaven’! Or a heavenly combination. Have fun! But I’m also curious about your favorite cleaning music. What reverberates through your sitting room or kitchen while cleaning?
